Header with mid-span support


Hi all,

Will be framing for a set of 3 windows installed side-by-side with 3 transom windows above (6 windows total). I'd like to use 1 header over the entire set with single 2x4s between each window. Maybe this is common and perfectly fine, or maybe it changes the way the header is going to function - I just haven't seen it before myself so wanted to see what others think. Thanks for any input.

Here's a few different variations of that scenario. Proper flashing details are crucial to proper installation of the windows with this framing detail.
